Summary: In 1895, Annie Londonderry "rode her bicycle" around the world and made the most of her newfound celebrity.
Review: Zheutlin sometimes seemed to be stretching a small amount of material to fill more pages, but overall, this was a fascinating look at the status of women's rights at the turn of the century.
I read (more or less) three books on Saturday's 24-hour readathon. I had every intention of being a good little blogger and writing my reviews right away so I wouldn't get too far behind. Yeah, didn't happen. Reading was much more fun than writing reviews. But I don't want to ignore the books altogether, so I thought I would try some more two sentence reviews.

Great job! I love these short reviews. Was this harder or easier than writing a full review? For me it would be harder I think.

Definitely harder! I'm a wordy person, so it's a whole new experience to limit myself in this way! :)

I love The Importance of Being Earnest! A classic that makes me laugh out loud is pretty remarkable! I want to re-read it for the classics club and also read the other plays in the BN collection edition.

I'd love to see The Importance of Being Earnest actually performed someday!

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
